Restore Your Smile With Overdentures:
Broken or missing teeth can give you much more than just an imperfect smile. With overdentures you will not only get the confidence back you once lost, but gain several benefits in return which include;
Tooth-supported overdentures can be a great option if you have very few remaining natural teeth that you want to save. Removable partial or complete dentures overlie and attach to retained natural teeth or tooth roots in the maxillary (upper) and/or mandibular (lower) arch, offering more stability than conventional dentures. The presence and continued stimulation of a healthy periodontal ligament (the tissue that anchors your natural teeth to your jaw bone) may help to prevent bone resorption as well as maintain a more natural feeling when chewing.
The natural teeth may require additional procedures to prepare them to act as abutments (attachments) for the overdenture prosthesis, such as reshaping and/or root canal treatment. Once they’re prepared, a prosthodontist will take an impression and fabricate a custom removable appliance to fit securely over top, giving you a beautiful and natural-looking smile.

Tooth or implant supported overdentures are not for everyone. The best person to determine whether you're a suitable candidate for overdenture treatment is an experienced prosthodontist. After an evaluation of your current oral and overall health, your goals, the level and quality of your bone, and the condition of your existing teeth, they will be able to talk you through all the treatment options that are appropriate for you and your situation.
A patient who may be a candidate for overdentures typically struggle with the following problems:
A wide variety of overdentures are available today, including tooth-supported and implant overdentures, as well as removable and fixed (permanent dentures). The one that’s right for you will depend on your unique situation. Your dentist will assess your current oral health and discuss your goals with you to customize a treatment plan.
Both tooth-supported and implant overdentures will help prevent bone loss and offer a more stable fit and more comfortable experience by attaching to an anchor in the jaw.
With tooth-supported overdentures, the remaining teeth you have are leveraged to act as the anchors for a removable denture that attaches securely over top. The ligaments (soft tissue) around the natural tooth structure allow you to feel a more normal sensation of chewing than with traditional dentures.
With implant overdentures, dental implants are surgically placed into the maxillary (upper) and/or mandibular (lower) jawbone to provide strong and durable support. Implant-supported overdentures allow your dentist to optimize the best support for your bone structure by customizing the number and type of dental implants used, and the option of a fixed (permanent) denture instead of a removable denture.
